American dies fighting for Islamic State!Can Obama Administration prevent Americans joining Islamic State?

According to the USA TODAY on 27th August,one of the Americans called Douglas McCain,had been killed in Syria and a national security spokeswoman at the White House, Caitlin Hayden, confirmed the death of Douglas McCain.

This is the first case officially admitted that an American fighted for Islamic State had been killed.

It is said that Douglas McCain 33,was born in Chicago and worked in San Diego for “Dawah – Calling to Allah,” which describes itself as a non-profit dedicated to spreading the word about Islam and inviting people to join the faith,after graduation of Robbinsdale Cooper High School in New Hope, Minn.

Originally,his religious background was Christianity but converted to Islam several years ago.

Kenyata McCain,a cousin,said “I was in touch with Douglas McCain as recently as Friday.He was telling all of us he was in Turkey.I know that he had strong Muslim beliefs,but I didn’t know that he was in support of Islamic State. I didn’t think he would be.”

The reason of having changed his faith lies in darkness but propaganda of Islamic State is awfully tactical.He might have gotten talked into it.

President Obama urged Muslim nations to band together to stop the Islamic State.He admitted airstrikes on IS positions in Iraq this month,leading to some advances by Iraqi and Kurdish forces.

But I don’t think these measures are enough to stop IS’s proliferation.
President Obama has declined to intervene in Syria’s civil war.This might make things getting worse.

I hear in England,there are more than a thousand fighters joining that at least 1,500 people have been recruited to fight in Iraq and Syria in the past three years.

Foreign fighters recruited by IS are increasing and Americans cannot be regarded as an exception.

I hope President Obama take actions to stop Americans fighting for IS as quick  as thought.
